Theo Bleckmann, downtown vocalist extraordinaire, brings his band to unveil his new project – reinterpreting the songs of the reclusive British art-rocker Kate Bush. Bleckmann takes on her mysterious songbook in "Hello Earth! - The Music of Kate Bush," and has assembled an all-star cast to further extend the realms of sound and interpretation. Joining him in this venture is long-time collaborator percussionist John Hollenbeck, bassist Skuli Sverrisson, keyboardist Henry Hey and Caleb Burhans on electric violin and guitar.

Thank you for these interesting interpretations. Any chance of seeing this on tour in Europe? In a Berlin bar, perhaps?!

I honestly am even more baffled by this guy's success than I am by Madonna's, and that's saying a lot

Thank you for your interesting interpretation of Kate's songs. I just emailed this link to German KB fans - rest assured, more people will learn about your "Hello Earth" project, and deservedly so! I am looking forward to the record/CD release. Grüße aus Hamburg, Bettina
